Vaxjo has a small population (of under 100,000) as its shown in Vaxjo Sweden map, with almost 3 people for every car, so the transformation to a fossil-free society might be relatively simple. The use of urban planning in the development of the city has helped Vaxjo remain very green; the city has retained its natural setting, forest, which helps the city promote cycling and walking. Vaxjo makes use of its very unique geography, as over half of the city is covered by forest, to produce renewable energy (mostly sourced from biomass). Vaxjo is recognized internationally as a city that leads the world in locally-sourced renewable energy (mostly in the form of biomass, with some solar and other RE sources contributing as well). Biomass and biofuels, mostly sourced from forestry, wood chips, sawdust, bark, and peat (all forestry remnants); as well as from agricultural waste - represent the major form of energy in Vaxjo.

The Växjö lake (Växjösjön) is surrounded by an almost five kilometre long beach promenade, which is part of Växjö’s city park.
